I loved New York’s Spring 16 Fashion Week. This is a rarity for me, as I tend to gravitate towards Europe’s shows. But this year, there was so much amazingness coming out of NYC, it was kind of shocking. Not only was there innovation in the fabrications, but clear color trends emerged (oranges and reds), along with new and exciting design concepts. And it was all done really beautifully. The looks were well-styled from hair to toe. The complete gestalt.
Not only am I inspired by the creativity the designers put forth in their collections (Marc Jacobs especially), but there was a major wearability component present in NYC, which is not always the case on the runway. I find the balance of imaginative and wearable collections to be critical. You want the art, but then you also want to be able to wear the clothes (or at least dream to) day to day.
My favorite show goes to Ryan Roche. I basically want to live in this collection. Forever.
Here are some of the highlights from the week…
